Would love to see Alonso get the win.Spicey!
Fernando Alonso beat the Red Bull Racing drivers to the top spot in second practice at the Bahrain Grand Prix in another tantalizing glimpse of Aston Martin’s potential. The Spaniard hustled his AM…racer.com
He's supposedly driving one handed and has been reasonably quick, so it's probably fair to wait and see how he does when he's healed. He's currently 6th, which granted, is just practice, but that fast while playing hurt isn't a bad start.Stroll ‘24, Stroll ‘25, Stroll ‘26…
Those are the titles he’s going to win.He's supposedly driving one handed and has been reasonably quick, so it's probably fair to wait and see how he does when he's healed. He's currently 6th, which granted, is just practice, but that fast while playing hurt isn't a bad start.
Well, it's a broken wrist. They should park him for the weekend so he doesn't make it worse. It's also not safe for the others to be around a guy driving that hurt.Not sure how they’re allowing Stroll to drive. He could barely steer and couldn’t get out of the car by himself after practice.
Hamilton is done with Mercedes's concept game. He wants merc to go back to a normal looking car.
Credit to AMR for all the work and investment they’re putting in to build a long-term contender, but it’s incredible that Mercedes have maybe reached the point where they’re now slower than a customer team.
Well, it looks like they are stuck with it at least for the weekend. They got rid of the bouncing and now it's all in tweaking the package that has consistently gotten faster as the weekend goes on. Next race they may have something new, or they may get this car to work better. Or they may suck. It's too early to tell.Right damn near embarrassing. If they get the car concept wrong in consecutive years, I'd say it's a matter of personnel at that point. Heads should start rolling maybe starting with Wolff. Their head engineer Elliot has not impressed since Allison kind of took a step back and he has had the reigns in making and developing the car.
I'm not so sure it's the pods that are the problem. It sounds like they have balance issues, and those more often than not are mechanical. Either way, they have plenty of work to do.It's so nice of Mercedes to keep using their slow zero sidepods. Makes it easier for other teams to fight for the podium.
Great stuff from Hulk especially being “out of F1” for the past three years.Maybe Hulk is the answer for Haas. Puts pressure on Mags.
Seems like every session I have seen this weekend , Mick is
standing next to Toto's perch. Little bit of a lapdog look to me.
Hope its just for the short term orientation period.
Nice Q3 for the opener.
